Remember how I mentioned previously that I used to blog at blogspot but have now moved to wordpress?? well, let me tell you how this current blog started and why I am back to blogging.
This entry was actually written on 18th April 2008 at another wordpress blog- plainejane84 (yeah.. rather corny in a super plain way) but have now been moved here due to a better named blog… yours truly’s kookie-ness… ok. corny again. i can’t help it!
well… it all begin when i was sick of work the other day and decided to skip and was surfing online and by chance, came across a link and clicked on it- Blogging your way into a business and spent a few minutes reading it. It was about bloggers who blogs for a living and some whoblogs as a side job earning from advertisements ie google sense, advertlets or nuffnangs.
Most bloggers never started out blogging with the intention to get readers to click away on advertisement and thus make money out of them. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Majority just started of blogging as a daily only journal about their likes and dislikes and their interest may it be food, places, things etc and also their daily lives.
I previously blogged using blogspot but decided to stop as people from office knew about my blog and was linking me and God only knows why but i felt indignant not knowing who was reading my blog. Let’s just say, life at work really was a pain in the you-know-where and probably 90% of my entries depicted how I hated my job and my whinings on how depressed I was. Hence, my blogging moments since 2003 (when i started the blog in college before it became a rage) came to a halt and left for my secondment down south or rather banishment from my Company, depending on how you want to look at it.
However, after serving my secondment and coming back home and being depressed again, I realised, I missed blogging. Not so for others to read about my sad and pathetic life but just an outlet to rant and vent my pent up emotions and also the pleasure of detailing what i go through and well, life through my eyes.
There there. I have digress from the topic at hand, once again.
So, basically, i read the above New York Times article and this guy who started the Anoymous Lawyer blog has now turned it into a book. Several years back, clicking randomly on a link off an ex high school mate’s blog, this lady, Abby Lee who blogs about her randy dandy sex life, appetite and fantasies have now turned her entries into a book and probably is doing quite well despite the topic of her book. Then again, that’s what the world is about nowadays- sex and scandals.
In other words, bloggers who blogged on their life etc or on celebrities such as Trent and Perez Hilton to name a few are now probably earning a healthy income just by blogging. And yes, i hope that eventually I will be able to blog witty entries such as the ever famous Kenny Sia who is a judge on Malaysia’s Dreamgirls and also a participant in Cleo’s 50 most eligible bachelor or Su Ann aka Pink Pau who has a flair to be dramatic at times and yet showcase intellectual and amusing opinions.
Either that, or I could be like Singaporean bloggers Dawn Yang and Wendy (probably better known as XiaXue) and have plastic surgeries performed somewhere somehow and be all “pretty” and bimbo-ish. Then again, this is after all, a plain jane’s blog from a plain jane’s point of view who is neither super smart or super pretty.
Then again, this is all just a matter of my opinion.
ps: I hope the above people don’t mind me linking them, then again, I am sure it’s good publicity for their blogs, not that they need it as they’re doing pretty good on their very own.
Hear ye! Hear ye!
Welcome to the ramblings and gripings of a pensive and forlorn cookie or should i say…. kookie!
